How amazing is this pool? Before this, however, the pool was drained for resurfacing.

According to Michael, “When they drained it, they had water leaking through cracks and seams in the pool floor, preventing the application of the coating material.” Since the leaks were ocean water seeping into the pool a Sydney contractor curtain grouted the bottom of the pool with Prime Flex 920, a hydrophobic polyurethane that forms a rigid, watertight foam. This sealed the cracks and created a waterproof barrier underneath the pool, allowing the pool surface to dry out for the new coating application. As you can see, it was a complete success.
